Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) is holding a Maths Competency Test (MCT) on Friday 1st April for applicants to its Level 8 (Honours) Engineering programmes that require a minimum grade of HC3 in Leaving Certificate Mathematics.
Students who achieve the required standard in the test will be eligible for DIT Engineering courses, even if they don't achieve the required Leaving Cert maths grade. The exam relates ONLY to DIT Level 8 Engineering programmes. It does not apply to other DIT programmes, or to any programme outside of DIT
The MCT offers an alternative to students who might be concerned about the outcome of their Leaving Cert maths in June, or who opt to drop to Ordinary Level Maths before the June exams.
|Note: The MCT is not obligatory and no extra CAO points are awarded for successful students. Those students that are successful will have met the minimum entry requirement of HC3 in Leaving Certificate Mathematics.
DIT accepts applications for the MCT from students who have applied for a Level 8 Engineering programme, which has a minimum requirement of a HC3 in maths:
- Electrical/Electronic Engineering (DT021)
- Manufacturing & Design Engineering (DT023)
- Engineering (General Entry) DT066
- Computer & Communications Engineering (DT081)
The Leaving Cert higher level course is set at a similar standard to this exam.
Preparation courses will take place in DIT, Kevin Street on 30th and 31st March. Candidates will be emailed their results after the Leaving Cert.
Booking is currently closed for the April 1st Examination. Another opportunity to take this type of maths exam will be available at DIT, as well as at a number of other colleges, in August. Booking for the August Exam at DIT will re-open on Monday 4th April.
Full details of the DIT Maths Competence Test are available here together with past papers.
